Sail Date: Dec 2022

I have had the privilege to travel to some fantastic places in my lifetime, but this trip under Captain Joergen Cardestig and crew was without a doubt way over the top of any of my other trips. The Captain made sure we had the absolute best trip ever. There were approximately 340 passengers and a crew of 273 and everyone of them just wanted you to have a great time. I spoke to cooks, servers, room stewards, upper echelon crew (I called the the ones in the suits), scientists who were on board, and even the hard at work guys cleaning the windows and deck and everyone of them took the time to ask what they could do to make the voyage better. You were always greeted with a smile and no matter what they were doing they would stop to talk to you to answer a question or give directions. They all seemed happy to be there and wanted you to have a phenomenal day. Every place we stopped or were going to was just the best.

Thank you Viking for a trip of a lifetime.

Cabin Review

Our cabin was kept immaculate at all times and they seemed to find just the right time to do their work when we were off doing something else. Just wonderful.
